Analysis and Predictions
These are the two best teams at the moment and all credit to them. Both teams have shown signs of promise throughout the start of the campaign and they would like to hold onto that.
Nice have the advantage behind them, but they must be cautious of the threat from Brest. This looks like the sort of game that is decided by 1 mistake from either team and both teams will be careful not to give away any chances to concede. This game should end with a few goals but who will emerge the winner is difficult to call.
